Man Catches Fire as Crowds Screams “FTP.”
After 100 days of protests, a Portland Rioter who burned with rage against police, got more than he bargained for in another heated Black Lives Matter protest-turned-riot. Police in riot gear lined the streets awaiting the crowd to disperse. As protesters chanted “F— the police,” Molotov cocktails were fired toward police and mini explosions rung out. Suddenly, a man caught fire and began running around in circles. Another man with a bullhorn continued yelling, “This is what democracy looks like!” The man with fire shooting up his legs wriggled around on the ground in a fast “stop, drop and roll” effort, as police ran up in hot pursuit to extinguish the flames. Police quickly declared a riot zone and commanded the crowd to clear, in efforts to regain control.
